Matthew 26 – The Nazarene’s Commentary: The Last days of Jesus Christ #5 Matthew 26:17-19 – Passover Preparations

Matthew 26:17-19 – Passover Preparations

|| Mark 14:12-16; Luke 22:7-13

MT26:17 Now on the first day of the unfermented cakes[1] the disciples approached Jesus and asked, “Where do you wish to prepare to eat the Passover?” MT26:18 Jesus told them, “Go into the city and when you face So-and-so say to him,[2] ‘The Teacher says, “My time is near.[3] With you I am having the Passover[4] with my disciples.”’” MT26:19 And the disciples did just as Jesus directed them. They prepared the Passover.[5]


[1] The first day of the unfermented cakes: There is no universal agreement on this phrase. The Greek PROTE may infer, “the day before,” meaning Nisan 13. Compare Exodus 12:18; Exodus 23:15. Mark 14:12 adds, “… when they customarily sacrificed the Passover.” (Luke 22:7) Nisan 14 would begin at sundown. The Jews had to clear all leaven out of their homes and prepare the sacrificial meal of lamb. In the case of the collection of manna it was to be done the day before Sabbath when they would get a double portion (Exodus 16:5, 22-27; Exodus 20:10). In time “the day before the sabbath” came to be termed “Preparation,” as Mark explained (Mark 15:42). “(The Jews) need not give bond (to appear in court) on the Sabbath or on the day of preparation for it (Sabbath Eve) after the ninth hour (3 PM).” The Jews thus began to prepare for the Sabbath on Friday afternoon, or on those occasions where a special Sabbath fell on another day, the afternoon before [Jewish Antiquities, XVI, 163 (vi, 2)]. Nisan 14 was also a Sabbath day no matter what day it fell on. Friday evening at sundown would begin a high holy day with a double Sabbath (John 19:31, 42; Mark 15:42, 43; Luke 23:54). There is disagreement on these dating of matters.

[2] When you face So-and-so say to him: Mark 14:13 adds, “… a man carrying an earthenware vessel of water will encounter,” something rare for men so easily identifiable (Luke 22:10). Or, NEB: go to a certain man in the city.

[3] My time is near: Or, NEB: my appointed time is near. How would Jesus know this? It is possible he could calculate the “middle of the week” of Daniel 9:25, 26 or three and a half years after the beginning of the Nazarene’s ministry which would have begun in the Fall of 29. This would be a period of 1,260 days or 42 months.

[4] With you I am having the Passover: Or, KJV: I will keep the Passover at thy house; RHM: with thee will I keep the Passover.

[5] They prepared the Passover: According to tradition this would begin late on Nisan 13 some hours before sundown and the beginning of Nisan 14. The first day of the eight-day Passover festival was also a Sabbath no matter the day of the week upon which it fell. This period was called “preparation” and would have occurred twice during this particular year. The disciples would have prepared a lamb, green herbs, unleavened bread, red wine for a dozen people. This was the average family size as the Passover was a family celebration.

Even among the Jews there is disagreement about the precise timing: some choosing Nisan 14 and others Nisan 15. “Different opinions have prevailed among the Jews from a very early date as to the precise time intended. Aben Ezra agrees with the Caraites and Samaritans in taking the first evening to be the time when the sun sinks below the horizon, and the second the time of total darkness; in which case, ‘between the two evenings’ would be from 6 o’clock to 7.20…. According to the rabbinical idea, the time when the sun began to descend, viz. from 3 to 5 o’clock, was the first evening, and sunset the second; so that ‘between the two evenings’ was from 3 to 6 o’clock. Modern expositors have very properly decided in favour of the view held by Aben Ezra and the custom adopted by the Caraites and Samaritans.” (Commentary on the Old Testament, 1973, Vol. I, The Second Book of Moses, p. 12)

The Most important weekend of the year 2018

Soon we shall gather to remember two major instances in the history of the People of God. The first remembrance is the liberation from the slavery in Egypt, where God gave enough signs so that people could come to recognise Who is the Most High God above all gods. The second celebration is that of the Jewish master teacher Jeshua (Jesus Christ) who came together at the upper room to remember the Exodus from Egypt but also to install a special moment, namely bringing some symbols in the light of the evening.

Some disciples close to this master teacher had seen how their master had come typically to the Jews in the end of their age as Prophet, (teacher) as Priest (“when he offered up Himself,” `Heb_7:27`.) and as King. (When he rode into their city at the close of his ministry.) But those disciples could see how the moment of glory was very short and how their Jewish brethren did not receive their master in any of these forms.

For a short time they had walked with him and had witnessed miracles. For them it was clear they had some one in front of them who was

“a teacher sent from God“.

They looked up at him, but still expected him to be  a warrior who would defeat the Romans and would become their “King” or ruler.

The Jewish “Feast of Passover” commenced on the fifteenth day of their month Nisan and lasted seven days. Though before that day, there was the the killing of the lamb on the 14th of Nisan, which shall be this coming Friday, March 30, Erev Pesach or Fast of the First born, followed by Nisan 15, 5778 or Pesach 1.

Having the Friday and Saturday the remembrance moments of the liberation of the Jews and the Gentiles, we should jubilate. You could think we should be sad, because Jesus would be slaughtered as a lamb, but we do know that by his offering we were bought free. By his offering at the stake freedom came over mankind, him making an end to the curse of death. And that should bring happiness in our hearts, also three days later mankind got the proof that a man could get out of the dead.

In case Jesus would have been God we would not have any proof that man could resurrect from the death. But now with this man of flesh and blood, the world could see how God had lifted him and has given him a very special place.

Jesus had told his disciples a lot about how to behave and how to treat others, like the homeless, the poor, the needy and how to handle the material provisions, wealth, prosperity, riches, but also poverty and to be prepared to live a life for God. They had heard strange things, like that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. They also had heard that when when their master, the Son of Man, would be sitting on his glorious throne, they who had followed him would also come to sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.  (Matthew 19:27-30)

They were so convinced they would come to see that kingdom in their lifetime, but that night this man talked about his death, him leaving them. He took bread and spoke about this being his body. They knew Jesus did not turn the bread into his literal flesh and the wine into his real blood. Jesus’ fleshly body was still intact when he offered this bread and wine. Jesus’ apostles were not really eating his literal flesh and drinking his blood, for that would have been cannibalism and a violation of God’s law. (Genesis 9:3, 4; Leviticus 17:10)

According to Luke 22:20, Jesus said:

“This cup means the new covenant by virtue of my blood, which is to be poured out in your behalf.”

The apostles never thought that the cup presented to them literally would have become “the new covenant”. They knew that would be impossible, since a covenant is an agreement, not a tangible object.

Hence, both the bread and the wine have to be looked at as only symbols. The bread symbolizes Christ’s perfect body. Jesus used a loaf of bread left over from the Passover meal. The loaf was made without any leaven, or yeast. (Exodus 12:8) The Bible often uses leaven as a symbol of sin or corruption. The bread therefore represents the perfect body that Jesus sacrificed. It was free of sin.​—Matthew 16:11, 12; 1 Corinthians 5:6, 7; 1 Peter 2:22; 1 John 2:1, 2.

The red wine represents Jesus’ blood. That blood makes valid the new covenant. Jesus said that his blood was poured out

“for forgiveness of sins.”

Jesus made it clear that humans can become clean in God’s eyes and can enter into the new covenant with Jehovah. (Hebrews 9:14; 10:16, 17) Jesus was convinced that God would accept his offering and consider his act as a covenant, or contract.

Let us come together Friday night to remember that special sent one from god who was willing to give his life for our sins.

Een Hamanratel door kinderen gebruikt op Poerim om o.a. kabaal te maken als de naam van de kwaadaardige Haman valt bij het voorlezen in de synagoge van de boekrol van Ester

Gisteren werd door veel ware geliefden van God herinnerd dat ongerechtigheden de slechten zullen vangen. In Joodse gezinnen konden kinderen spelen met een rammelaar om het kwaad weg te jagen.

Natuurlijk kunnen we zien dat er heel veel kwaad in deze wereld is gekomen en dat kwaad zelfs probeert in elk huishouden binnen te gaan via dat kleine scherm, dat vandaag een groot scherm is geworden, dat veel seks en uitwisseling van partners laat zien alsof het een normaal gedrag is. Veel programma’s op veel kanalen brengen hetzelfde soort voyeurisme en seks van ‘s morgens vroeg tot’ s avonds laat.

Wanneer we naar deze wereld kijken en zien hoe we ook meer mensen krijgen die proberen gelovigen in de Ene God het zwijgen op te leggen of ouders het zwijgen willen opleggen hun kinderen naar hun religie te willen opvoeden (zoals gisteren in het tv-debat over Terzake op Canvas), verboden om gekleed te worden volgens het geloof of het dragen van religieuze symbolen.
De discussie is terug van nooit weggeweest. Voor- en tegenstanders schermen met dezelfde argumenten. Mensenrechten en vrije keuze. Alleen lezen ze die begrippen anders. Darya Safai (N-VA) en Mieke Van Hecke (CD&V) gingen daar bij in debat. Terwijl Mieke Van Hecke toe gaf dat het haar enig falen is als verantwoordelijke voor het Katholiek onderwijs en toe geeft dat zij heeft moeten zwichten onder druk van de ouders en de politiek met als gevolg dat Sikhs in Sint-Truiden nu niet meer naar school kunnen gaan om dat een hoofdbedekking niet toegelaten is. Zij ziet eveneens in hoe wij als maatschappij niet het recht hebben om ouders hun wijze van religieuze opvoeding te verbieden en dat wij eigenlijk naar een pluralistische maatschappij moeten gaan waarbij elke religie gerespecteerd moet worden en iedereen daarbij de vrijheid moet hebben om datgene te dragen wat zij willen dragen volgens hun religie of denken. Velen vergeten dat vroeger in Vlaanderen Katholieke vrouwen ook een hoofdbedekking moesten dragen, terwijl het in Nederland nog steeds zo is in verscheidene conservatieve Christelijke gemeenschappen.

De recente aanvallen op Joden en reacties tegen moslims, plus mensen die anderen eisen om hun drieledig katholiek geloof te accepteren, zouden ons een beetje zorgen moeten maken, omdat we serieus problematische racistische en neo-nazi-websites kunnen vinden.

Je zou kunnen denken dat de beste manier is om het allemaal te laten gebeuren en om rustig thuis te blijven of niet in het oog te vallen. We moeten niet opvallend gekleed zijn en mogen best onopvallend zijn, maar het zou verkeerd zijn om te zwijgen en niet te reageren op degenen die discrimineren en slecht zijn voor degenen die een andere religie hebben.

Esther verbreekt de stilte van haar geboorte of nationaliteit en vertelt de koning dat ze een Jood is

Gisteren hadden we de dag dat de Joden eraan dachten hoe Esther haar zwijgen verbrak en haar nationaliteit openbaarde om de Joden te redden. Ze had kunnen zwijgen en verder van haar leven genieten als koningin, maar ze nam het risico en sprak. Door dit te doen redde ze veel Joden van de dood. Daarom vierden de Joden gisteren hun bevrijding, maar zoals zij deze dagen zullen blijven stilstaan ​​om een ​​nog een grotere bevrijding te gedenken, moeten wij als christenen dat ook ter harte nemen.

Over een paar weken zullen we gaan beseffen hoe God Zijn volk redde van de slavernij en hoe Hij hen leidde en hen hielp doorheen hun woestijndoortocht. Ook wij zullen die gebeurtenissen in herinnering nemen en zullen ons ook herinneren hoe Jezus in de bovenzaal samenkwam om dat speciale gebeuren te herdenken. We moeten steeds het voorbeeld van Jezus volgen en zoals hij vandaag een vredestichter zijn en uitkomen om mensen bij te staan, te verdedigen en uit te nodigen voor dat meest belangrijke weekend van het jaar.

Ter voorbereiding op 14 en 15-22 Nisan moeten wij ons zelf ‘reinigen’. Laten we daarom onszelf vrijmaken om die nacht van 30 maart samen te komen om aan God te laten zien hoe we van hem houden en hoe we Jezus waarderen voor wat hij voor ons heeft gedaan. We moeten er zeker van zijn dat we onze ogen niet verontreinigen met dingen die we beter niet kunnen zien. Laat je niet vangen door die populaire televisieprogramma’s die je de bodem van de ziel van de mens willen laten zien. Zorg ervoor dat je de komende weken geschillen beslecht die nog steeds gaande zijn. Herstel elke ruzie en doe een poging om vrienden te maken met degenen die je terzijde hebben geschoven.

De komende weken heb je tijd genoeg om ongelijkheden weg te werken en jezelf te reinigen. Laat uit je mond stromen komen van wat je geloof mee brengt. Neem de tijd om na te denken over hoe de moderne gadgets en media een wig tussen ons en God kunnen drijven. Laten we ervoor zorgen dat we geen deel van de wereld worden en alle kettingen van deze wereld verbreken. Breek weg, breek en breek los en concentreer je op God en de Redding die Hij op ons heeft voorbereid.

Het is nu de tijd dat we ons voorbereiden op een zuivere aanwezigheid op 1 april, wanneer we Pesach zullen vieren en onze dankbaarheid tonen voor de bevrijding van welke slavernij dan ook en voor de mogelijkheid die Jezus heeft gecreëerd om rein te zijn om het Koninkrijk der Hemelen binnen te gaan.

After the Sabbath after Passover, the resurrection of Jesus Christ

File:Gospel of Matthew Chapter 17-2 (Bible Illustrations by Sweet Media).jpg

Resurrection of Jesus – Biblical illustration of Gospel of Matthew Chapter 17 by Jim Padgett,




“1  and when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the [mother] of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him. 2 and very early in the morning, the first [day] of the week, they came to the sepulcher at the rising of the sun: 3 and they said among themselves, who shall roll away for us the stone from the door of the sepulcher?” (Mark 16:1-3 Webster)

“the first [day] of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, to the sepulcher, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulcher.” (John 20:1 Webster)

“and if this shall come to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him, and secure you.” (Matthew 28:14 Webster)

“1  now upon the first [day] of the week, very early in the morning, they came to the sepulcher, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain [others] with them. 2 and they found the stone rolled away from the sepulcher. 3 and they entered in, and found not the body of the lord Jesus. 4 and it came to pass, as they were much perplexed at this, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments. 5 and as they were afraid, and bowed down [their] faces to the earth, they said to them, why seek ye the living among the dead? 6 he is not here, but is risen. remember how he spoke to you when he was yet in Galilee, 7 saying, the son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. 8 and they remembered his words, 9 and returned from the sepulcher, and told all these things to the eleven, and to all the rest.” (Luke 24:1-9 Webster)

“39 but he answered and said to them, an evil and adulterous generation seeketh for a sign, and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 for as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly: so shall the son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth {sheol/hell}. ” (Matthew 12:39-40 Webster)

“23 him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of god, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: 24 whom god hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be held by it. 25 for David speaketh concerning him, I saw the lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: 26 therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also, my flesh shall rest in hope: 27 because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thy holy one to see corruption: 28 thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou wilt make me full of joy with thy countenance. 29 men, brethren, let me freely speak to you concerning the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulcher is with us to this day. 30 therefore being a prophet, and knowing that god had sworn to him with an oath, that from the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; 31 he seeing this before, spoke of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither did his flesh see corruption. 32 this Jesus hath god raised up, of which we all are witnesses. 33 therefore being by the right hand of god exalted, and having received from the father the promise of the holy spirit, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. 34 for David did not ascend into the heavens, but he saith himself, the LORD said to my lord, sit thou on my right hand, 35 until I make thy foes thy footstool. 36 therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that god hath made that same Jesus whom ye have crucified, both lord and Christ.” (Acts 2:23-36 Webster)

“3 concerning his son Jesus Christ our lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh. 4 and declared [to be] the son of god, with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:” (Romans 1:3-4 Webster)

“1  moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also ye have received, and in which ye stand; 2 by which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached to you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 for I delivered to you first of all, that which I also received, that Christ died for our sins, according to the scriptures; 4 and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 5 and that he was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve: 6 after that he was seen by above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain to this present, but some have fallen asleep. 7 after that he was seen by James; then by all the apostles. 8 and last of all he was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time. 9 for I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of god.” (1 Corinthians 15:1-9 Webster)

“3 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulcher. 4 so they ran both together: and the other disciple outran Peter, and came first to the sepulcher. 5 and he stooping down, saw the linen cloths lying; yet he went not in. 6 then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulcher, and seeth the linen cloths lying; 7 and the napkin that was about his head, not lying with the linen cloths, but wrapped together in a place by itself. 8 then went in also that other disciple who came first to the sepulcher, and he saw, and believed. 9 for as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.” (John 20:3-9 Webster)

“11  but Mary stood without at the sepulcher weeping: and as she wept she stooped down [to look] into the sepulcher, 12 and seeth two angels in white, sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. 13 and they say to her, woman, why weepest thou? she saith to them, because they have taken away my lord, and I know not where they have laid him. 14 and when she had thus said, she turned herself about, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus saith to her, woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? she, supposing him to be the gardener, saith to him, sir, if thou hast borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. 16 Jesus saith to her, Mary. she turned herself, and saith to him, Rabboni, which is to say, master. 17 Jesus saith to her, touch me not: for I have not yet ascended to my father: but go to my brethren, and say to them, I ascend to my father and your father, and [to] my god and your god. 18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the lord, and [that] he had spoken these things to her.” (John 20:11-18 Webster)

“28  ye have heard that I said to you, I go away, and come [again] to you. if ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go to the father: for my father is greater than I. 29 and now I have told you before it cometh to pass, that when it hath come to pass, ye may believe. 30 hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. 31 but that the world may know that I love the father; and as the father gave me commandment, even so I do. arise, let us go hence.” (John 14:28-31 Webster)

“25 these things have I spoken to you in proverbs: but the time cometh when I shall no more speak to you in proverbs, but I shall show you plainly concerning the father. 26 at that day ye will ask in my name: and I say not to you, that I will pray the father for you: 27 for the father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came from god.
28  I came forth from the father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the father.” (John 16:25-28 Webster)

“13 and no man hath ascended to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, [even] the son of man who is in heaven. 14 and as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the son of man be lifted up: 15 that whoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:13-15 Webster)

“15 I pray not that thou shouldst take them out of the world, but that thou shouldst keep them from the evil. 16 they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
17  sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18 as thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19 and for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also may be sanctified through the truth.” (John 17:15-19 Webster)

“19  then the same day at evening, being the first [day] of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and saith to them, peace [be] to you. 20 and when he had so said, he showed to them [his] hands and his side. then were the disciples glad when they saw the lord. 21 then said Jesus to them again, peace [be] to you: as [my] father hath sent me, even so I send you.” (John 20:19-21 Webster)

“1  the spirit of the lord GOD [is] upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to publish good tidings to the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to [them that are] bound; 2 to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our god; to comfort all that mourn; 3 to appoint to them that mourn in Zion, to give to them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified.” (Isaiah 61:1-3 Webster)

“search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” (John 5:39 Webster)

“the LORD thy god will raise up to thee a prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like to me; to him ye shall hearken.” (Deuteronomy 18:15 Webster)

“18 and Jesus came, and spoke to them, saying, all power is given to me in heaven and upon earth. 19 go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father, and of the son, and of the holy spirit. 20 teaching them to observe all things whatever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, [even] to the end of the world. amen.” (Matthew 28:18-20 Webster)

“1  thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2 and the things that thou hast heard from me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” (2 Timothy 2:1-2 Webster)

“hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard from me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.” (2 Timothy 1:13 Webster)

“24 but Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 the other disciples therefore said to him, we have seen the lord. but he said to them, except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.
26  and after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: [then] came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, peace [be] to you. 27 then saith he to Thomas, reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust [it] into my side; and be not faithless, but believing. 28 and Thomas answered and said to him, my lord and my god. 29 Jesus saith to him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed [are] they that have not seen, and [yet] have believed.” (John 20:24-29 Webster)

“(for we walk by faith, not by sight:)” (2 Corinthians 5:7 Webster)

“8 whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see [him] not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable, and full of glory: 9 receiving the end of your faith, [even] the salvation of [your] souls.
10  concerning which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace [that should come] to you: 11 searching what, or what manner of time the spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. 12 to whom it was revealed, that not to themselves, but to us they ministered the things which are now reported to you by them that have preached the gospel to you, with the holy spirit sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.” (1 Peter 1:8-12 Webster)

“and when she had thus said, she turned herself about, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.” (John 20:14 Webster)

“and as they were thus speaking, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith to them, peace [be] to you.” (Luke 24:36 Webster)

“43 and he took [it], and ate before them. 44 and he said to them, these [are] the words which I spoke to you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and [in] the prophets, and [in] the psalms, concerning me. 45 then he opened their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, 46 and said to them, thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 and ye are witnesses of these things. 49 and behold, I send the promise of my father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye are endued with power from on high.
50  and he led them out as far as to Bethany: and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. 51 and it came to pass, while he was blessing them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. 52 and they worshiped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: 53 and were continually in the temple, praising and blessing god. amen.” (Luke 24:43-53 Webster)

“19  so then after the lord had spoken to them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of god. 20 and they went forth, and preached every where, the lord working with [them], and confirming the word with signs following. amen.” (Mark 16:19-20 Webster)

“30 moreover, whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
31  what shall we then say to these things? if god [is] for us, who [can be] against us? 32 he that spared not his own son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 33 who will lay any thing to the charge of god’s elect? [it is] god that justifieth: 34 who [is] he that condemneth? [it is] Christ that died, or rather that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of god, who also maketh intercession for us. 35 who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 as it is written, for thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 but in all these things we are more than conquerors, through him that loved us. 38 for I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 nor hight, nor depth, nor any other creature, will be able to separate us from the love of god which is in Christ Jesus our lord.” (Romans 8:30-39 Webster)

  • The Significance of the Resurrection – Jesus Arose Where He Died (
    Death is an all encompassing word, powerful by definition, feared by most, yet totally incapacitated by the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Blood of Christ revives our spirit, restores our inheritance, and renews our life. In Christ our rebirth is a great resuscitation that overcomes and redefines death; opening the pathway to an eternity with our Redeemer.
  • The Resurrection of Jesus X 4 (
    There is no greater story than the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  It is the story that means the most to all Christians.  It is the story of a wonderful redeemer, who loved mankind enough to die for us.
  • The Power of His Resurrection (
    We would all have loved to be there on the road to Emmaus that day, walking with the resurrected Jesus himself as he detailed the different prophecies that concerned his death and resurrection. Still, the apostles and other New Testament writers do a good job of filling us in. The Old Testament is filled with prophecies and types of Jesus’ suffering and death and resurrection as payment for the sins of the world, and the New Testament points those out.
  • The Glory of Easter Part 2 (
    “The happy ending of the Resurrection is so enormous that it swallows up even the sorrow of the Cross.” – Tim Keller
    The Resurrection is not a consolation for suffering, the Resurrection is not even a removal of suffering, the Resurrection swallows suffering.” –  Tim Keller – The Hope of Glory

    Christ swallowed our suffering and it became a part of him and made him greater. And this is the Glory of the Cross, it shows that everything that you have ever been through will only make you greater in the end.  It means all your sorrows, pains, heartbreaks, disappointments, injustices, suffering, agony will somehow only make you greater in the end through the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. That’s a defeat!

  • The Resurrection of Jesus Christ (
    For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.
  • -Re: Easter and The Resurrection of Jesus Christ (
    On my Apologetica page I have posted links to two timely short but excellent articles and one video on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and Easter:

    <-On Easter and The Resurrection of Jesus >

    Then on my Bible Q& A page I have listed a number of key questions and answers for the Easter season:

    <-Easter Questions and Answers>

  • Holy Trifecta: Good Friday, Passover, Resurrection Sunday (
    This weekend, Christians around the world will gather to remember the death and rejoice in the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Over two thousand years ago, Christ died on the cross at Calvary as the payment for the sins of all people.  He was placed in the tomb, and three days later, conquered death and rose from the dead!  This weekend, as we gather with our families and loved ones, let us not forget what Christ’s triumph over death means: everlasting life for all those who believe.
  • When Was Jesus Crucified? (
    I’m convinced that Christ was in the tomb three days and three nights.  To begin with, a day on the Hebrew calendar is from sundown to sundown (Genesis 1: 5), while a day on the Gregorian calendar is from midnight to midnight.  So the Last Supper/Passover meal was held after sundown (Tuesday on the Gregorian calendar; Wednesday on the Hebrew calendar.)   Jesus died on the cross at 3 p.m.  Wednesday.  He was placed in the tomb before sundown because the following day was a special Sabbath, the first day of the  Feast of Unleavened Bread.  Therefore, Christ was in the grave Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.  He arose from the dead before dawn on the first day of the week (Sunday).  (For a timeline, click on
  • Even Resurrection Pauses For Sabbath Rest (
    Even resurrection pauses for Sabbath rest, in the Episcopal Relief and Development Lenten guide this morning, that today, for the Jews is indeed the sabbath day. This full day of Jesus time in the grave is the day into which all their hope and longing for the future is poured. A day to look forward with anticipation to the day when God does indeed make all things news.
  • “The Resurrection” (
    Jesus really did die on the cross for our sins, was buried, and three days later rose.

    I’m so thankful that my hope and joy does not rest in an Easter bunny. But a risen King.

  • Pesach

    I imagine that the death of Jesus was still sad in heaven even though they knew the whole plan. Suffering is sorrowful. I don’t really know what was happening while Jesus was dead so I won’t try to guess here.

“Die Juden antworteten ihm: Wir haben ein Gesetz, und nach [unserem] Gesetz muß er sterben, weil er sich selbst zu Gottes Sohn gemacht hat.” (Johannes 19:7 ELB)

“Denn also hat Gott die Welt geliebt, daß er seinen eingeborenen Sohn gab, auf daß jeder, der an ihn glaubt, nicht verloren gehe, sondern ewiges Leben habe.” (Johannes 3:16 ELB)

“Und siehe, eine Stimme kommt aus den Himmeln, welche spricht: Dieser ist mein geliebter Sohn, an welchem ich Wohlgefallen gefunden habe.” (Matthäus 3:17 ELB)

“17 Und sein Kreuz tragend, ging er hinaus nach der Stätte, genannt Schädelstätte, die auf hebräisch Golgatha heißt, 18 wo sie ihn kreuzigten, und zwei andere mit ihm, auf dieser und auf jener Seite, Jesum aber in der Mitte.
19  Pilatus schrieb aber auch eine Überschrift und setzte sie auf das Kreuz. Es war aber geschrieben: Jesus, der Nazaräer, der König der Juden. 20 Diese Überschrift nun lasen viele von den Juden, denn die Stätte, wo Jesus gekreuzigt wurde, war nahe bei der Stadt; und es war geschrieben auf hebräisch, griechisch und lateinisch. 21 Die Hohenpriester der Juden sagten nun zu Pilatus: Schreibe nicht: Der König der Juden, sondern daß jener gesagt hat: Ich bin König der Juden. 22 Pilatus antwortete: Was ich geschrieben habe, habe ich geschrieben.” (Johannes 19:17-22 ELB)

“23 Die Kriegsknechte nun nahmen, als sie Jesum gekreuzigt hatten, seine Kleider (und machten vier Teile, einem jeden Kriegsknecht einen Teil) und den Leibrock. Der Leibrock aber war ohne Naht, von oben an durchweg gewebt. 24 Da sprachen sie zueinander: Laßt uns ihn nicht zerreißen, sondern um ihn losen, wessen er sein soll; auf daß die Schrift erfüllt würde, welche spricht: “Sie haben meine Kleider unter sich verteilt, und über mein Gewand haben sie das Los geworfen”. Die Kriegsknechte nun haben dies getan.” (Johannes 19:23-24 ELB)

“Sie teilen meine Kleider unter sich, und über mein Gewand werfen sie das Los.” (Psalmen 22:18 ELB)

“Und als sie ihn gekreuzigt hatten, verteilen sie seine Kleider, indem sie das Los über dieselben warfen, was jeder bekommen sollte.” (Markus 15:24 ELB)

“28 Danach, da Jesus wußte, daß alles schon vollbracht war, spricht er, auf daß die Schrift erfüllt würde: Mich dürstet! 29 Es stand nun daselbst ein Gefäß voll Essig. Sie aber füllten einen Schwamm mit Essig und legten ihn um einen Ysop und brachten ihn an seinen Mund. 30 Als nun Jesus den Essig genommen hatte, sprach er: Es ist vollbracht! und er neigte das Haupt und übergab den Geist.” (Johannes 19:28-30 ELB)

“Und Jesus rief mit lauter Stimme und sprach: Vater, in deine Hände übergebe ich meinen Geist! Und als er dies gesagt hatte, verschied er.” (Lukas 23:46 ELB)

“1  Denn da das Gesetz einen Schatten der zukünftigen Güter, nicht der Dinge Ebenbild selbst hat, so kann es nimmer mit denselben Schlachtopfern, welche sie alljährlich ununterbrochen darbringen, die Hinzunahenden vollkommen machen. 2 Denn würde sonst nicht ihre Darbringung aufgehört haben, weil die den Gottesdienst Übenden, einmal gereinigt, kein Gewissen mehr von Sünden gehabt hätten? 3 Aber in jenen Opfern ist alljährlich ein Erinnern an die Sünden; 4 denn unmöglich kann Blut von Stieren und Böcken Sünden hinwegnehmen. 5 Darum, als er in die Welt kommt, spricht er: “Schlachtopfer und Speisopfer hast du nicht gewollt, einen Leib aber hast du mir bereitet; 6 an Brandopfern und Opfern für die Sünde hast du kein Wohlgefallen gefunden.
7  Da sprach ich: Siehe, ich komme (in der Rolle des Buches steht von mir geschrieben), um deinen Willen, o Gott zu tun.” 8 Indem er vorher sagt: “Schlachtopfer und Speisopfer und Brandopfer und Opfer für die Sünde hast du nicht gewollt, noch Wohlgefallen daran gefunden” (die nach dem Gesetz dargebracht werden), sprach er dann: 9 Siehe, ich komme, um deinen Willen zu tun”. (Er nimmt das Erste weg, auf daß er das Zweite aufrichte.) 10 Durch welchen Willen wir geheiligt sind durch das ein für allemal geschehene Opfer des Leibes Jesu Christi. – 11 Und jeder Priester steht täglich da, den Dienst verrichtend und oft dieselben Schlachtopfer darbringend, welche niemals Sünden hinwegnehmen können. 12 Er aber, nachdem er ein Schlachtopfer für Sünden dargebracht, hat sich auf immerdar gesetzt zur Rechten Gottes, 13 fortan wartend, bis seine Feinde gelegt sind zum Schemel seiner Füße. 14 Denn durch ein Opfer hat er auf immerdar vollkommen gemacht, die geheiligt werden.” (Hebräer 10:1-14 ELB)

“31  Die Juden nun baten den Pilatus, damit die Leiber nicht am Sabbath am Kreuze blieben, weil es Rüsttag war (denn der Tag jenes Sabbaths war groß), daß ihre Beine gebrochen und sie abgenommen werden möchten. 32 Da kamen die Kriegsknechte und brachen die Beine des ersten und des anderen, der mit ihm gekreuzigt war. 33 Als sie aber zu Jesu kamen und sahen, daß er schon gestorben war, brachen sie ihm die Beine nicht, 34 sondern einer der Kriegsknechte durchbohrte mit einem Speer seine Seite, und alsbald kam Blut und Wasser heraus. 35 Und der es gesehen hat, hat es bezeugt, und sein Zeugnis ist wahrhaftig; und er weiß, daß er sagt, was wahr ist, auf daß auch ihr glaubet.” (Johannes 19:31-35 ELB)

“4 Ich habe dich verherrlicht auf der Erde; das Werk habe ich vollbracht, welches du mir gegeben hast, daß ich es tun sollte. 5 Und nun verherrliche du, Vater, mich bei dir selbst mit der Herrlichkeit, die ich bei dir hatte, ehe die Welt war.
6  Ich habe deinen Namen geoffenbart den Menschen, die du mir aus der Welt gegeben hast. Dein waren sie, und du hast sie mir gegeben, und sie haben dein Wort bewahrt. 7 Jetzt haben sie erkannt, daß alles, was du mir gegeben hast, von dir ist; 8 denn die Worte, die du mir gegeben hast, habe ich ihnen gegeben, und sie haben sie angenommen und wahrhaftig erkannt, daß ich von dir ausgegangen bin, und haben geglaubt, daß du mich gesandt hast.” (Johannes 17:4-8 ELB)

“In einem Hause soll es gegessen werden; du sollst nichts von dem Fleische aus dem Hause hinausbringen, und ihr sollt kein Bein an ihm zerbrechen.” (2 Mose 12:46 ELB)

“12 sie sollen nichts davon übriglassen bis an den Morgen, und sollen kein Bein an ihm zerbrechen; nach allen Satzungen des Passah sollen sie es feiern. 13 Der Mann aber, der rein und nicht auf dem Wege ist, und es unterläßt, das Passah zu feiern, selbige Seele soll ausgerottet werden aus ihren Völkern; denn er hat die Opfergabe Jehovas nicht zur bestimmten Zeit dargebracht; selbiger Mann soll seine Sünde tragen.” (4Mose 9:12-13 ELB)

“17 Sie schreien, und Jehova hört, und aus allen ihren Bedrängnissen errettet er sie. 18 Nahe ist Jehova denen, die zerbrochenen Herzens sind, und die zerschlagenen Geistes sind, rettet er. 19 Viele sind der Widerwärtigkeiten des Gerechten, aber aus allen denselben errettet ihn Jehova; 20 Er bewahrt alle seine Gebeine, nicht eines von ihnen wird zerbrochen.” (Psalmen 34:17-20 ELB)

“36 Denn dies geschah, auf daß die Schrift erfüllt würde: “Kein Bein von ihm wird zerbrochen werden”. 37 Und wiederum sagt eine andere Schrift: “Sie werden den anschauen, welchen sie durchstochen haben”.
38  Nach diesem aber bat Joseph von Arimathia, der ein Jünger Jesu war, aber aus Furcht vor den Juden ein verborgener, den Pilatus, daß er den Leib Jesu abnehmen dürfe. Und Pilatus erlaubte es. Er kam nun und nahm den Leib Jesu ab.” (Johannes 19:36-38 ELB)

“Und ich werde über das Haus Davids und über die Bewohner von Jerusalem den Geist der Gnade und des Flehens ausgießen; und sie werden auf mich blicken, den sie durchbohrt haben, und werden über ihn wehklagen gleich der Wehklage über den Eingeborenen, und bitterlich über ihn leidtragen, wie man bitterlich über den Erstgeborenen leidträgt.” (Sacharja 12:10 ELB)

“Siehe, er kommt mit den Wolken, und jedes Auge wird ihn sehen, auch die ihn durchstochen haben, und wehklagen werden seinetwegen alle Stämme des Landes. Ja, Amen.” (Offenbarung 1:7 ELB)

“45 Aber von der sechsten Stunde an kam eine Finsternis über das ganze Land bis zur neunten Stunde; 46 um die neunte Stunde aber schrie Jesus auf mit lauter Stimme und sagte: Eli, eli, lama sabachthani? das ist: Mein Gott, mein Gott, warum hast du mich verlassen? 47 Als aber etliche der Dastehenden es hörten, sagten sie: Dieser ruft den Elias. 48 Und alsbald lief einer von ihnen und nahm einen Schwamm, füllte ihn mit Essig und steckte ihn auf ein Rohr und tränkte ihn. 49 Die Übrigen aber sagten: Halt, laßt uns sehen, ob Elias kommt, ihn zu retten!
50  Jesus aber schrie wiederum mit lauter Stimme und gab den Geist auf. 51 Und siehe, der Vorhang des Tempels zerriß in zwei Stücke, von oben bis unten; und die Erde erbebte, und die Felsen zerrissen, 52 und die Grüfte taten sich auf, und viele Leiber der entschlafenen Heiligen wurden auferweckt; 53 und sie gingen nach seiner Auferweckung aus den Grüften und gingen in die heilige Stadt und erschienen vielen. 54 Als aber der Hauptmann und die mit ihm Jesum bewachten, das Erdbeben sahen und das, was geschah, fürchteten sie sich sehr und sprachen: Wahrhaftig, dieser war Gottes Sohn!” (Matthäus 27:45-54 ELB)

“38  Nach diesem aber bat Joseph von Arimathia, der ein Jünger Jesu war, aber aus Furcht vor den Juden ein verborgener, den Pilatus, daß er den Leib Jesu abnehmen dürfe. Und Pilatus erlaubte es. Er kam nun und nahm den Leib Jesu ab. 39 Es kam aber auch Nikodemus, der zuerst bei Nacht zu Jesu gekommen war, und brachte eine Mischung von Myrrhe und Aloe, bei hundert Pfund. 40 Sie nahmen nun den Leib Jesu und wickelten ihn in leinene Tücher mit den Spezereien, wie es bei den Juden Sitte ist, zum Begräbnis zuzubereiten. 41 Es war aber an dem Orte, wo er gekreuzigt wurde, ein Garten, und in dem Garten eine neue Gruft, in welche noch nie jemand gelegt worden war. 42 Dorthin nun, wegen des Rüsttags der Juden, weil die Gruft nahe war, legten sie Jesum.” (Johannes 19:38-42 ELB)

“Des folgenden Tages aber, der nach dem Rüsttage ist, versammelten sich die Hohenpriester und die Pharisäer bei Pilatus” (Matthäus 27:62 ELB)

“Und als es schon Abend geworden, (dieweil es Rüsttag war, welches der Vorsabbath ist)” (Markus 15:42 ELB)

“50  Und siehe, ein Mann, mit Namen Joseph, der ein Ratsherr war, ein guter und gerechter Mann, 51 dieser hatte nicht eingewilligt in ihren Rat und in ihre Tat, von Arimathia, einer Stadt der Juden, der [auch selbst] das Reich Gottes erwartete; 52 dieser ging hin zu Pilatus und bat um den Leib Jesu. 53 Und als er ihn abgenommen hatte, wickelte er ihn in feine Leinwand und legte ihn in eine in Felsen gehauene Gruft, wo noch nie jemand gelegen hatte. 54 Und es war Rüsttag, und der Sabbath brach an. 55 Es folgten aber die Weiber nach, welche mit ihm aus Galiläa gekommen waren, und besahen die Gruft und wie sein Leib hineingelegt wurde. 56 Als sie aber zurückgekehrt waren, bereiteten sie Spezereien und Salben; und den Sabbath über ruhten sie nach dem Gebot.” (Lukas 23:50-56 ELB)

“Sehet, weil Jehova euch den Sabbath gegeben hat, darum gibt er euch am sechsten Tage Brot für zwei Tage; bleibet ein jeder an seiner Stelle, niemand gehe am siebten Tage von seinem Orte heraus.” (2 Mose 16:29 ELB)

“Gedenke des Sabbathtages, ihn zu heiligen.” (2 Mose 20:8 ELB)

“Beobachte den Sabbathtag, ihn zu heiligen, so wie Jehova, dein Gott, dir geboten hat.” (5Mose 5:12 ELB)

14-15 Nisan and Easter

  • Passover: A Time To Remember (
    The Passover, the Festival of Unleavened Bread, and the Festival of First Fruits commemorate a succession of historical events that are recorded in the Book of Exodus.
    The basis for a Christian interpretation of the first of the Seven Festivals as the decisive component in God’s plan for redemption pivots upon the identification of Jesus with the paschal lamb (Ross 2002, 409).
    And not only has Passover been connected to the death of Christ, but also to the Lord’s Supper, which is also obviously a symbolic pre-enactment of Christ’s death as well as an re-enactment celebrated by the Church since that time.
  • Orthodox Easter: What’s up with that? – Part 2 (
    Easter is this Sunday, March 31. But Orthodox Easter, celebrated by most branches of the Eastern Orthodox Church (including the Russian Orthodox Church) and some Oriental Orthodox churches, is May 5 this year, a full five weeks after Easter as celebrated by Western Christian churches. (As a footnote, you may listen to Rimsky-Korsakov’s Russian Easter Overture at this site.) The five-week difference has happened recently in 2002, 2005, and 2008. But in 2001, 2004, 2007, 2010, and 2011, Western and Orthodox Easter fell on the same day. And in 2000, 2003, 2006, 2009, and 2012, Orthodox Easter was one week after Western Easter. What’s up with that?
    As an initial matter, note that Easter Sunday is the day when Jesus Christ rose from the dead, and the Gospels say that happened when he came to Jerusalem to celebrate Passover. So in principle, you could think that Easter happens at Passover — more precisely, on 14 Nisan, the day before Passover starts on 15 Nisan. (See also various verses in chapter 19 of the Gospel according to John.) Now the Jewish calendar is a complicated thing, but the bottom line is that 15 Nisan is always on a full moon after the spring equinox. How do they guarantee that this happens? Intercalation, that’s how. Because Jewish months are lunar, the folks in charge of the calendar stick in a whole nother month, called Adar II, before Nisan just to ensure that Passover is on a full moon after the equinox.So why not tie Easter to Passover and celebrate it whenever 14 Nisan would fall in the Jewish calendar? The Christians who believed you should do this were called Quartodecimans, or “fourteeners” if you will. Various Christian communities followed the “14 Nisan” rule and just asked their local Jews when Passover started, but after controversies in the second and third centuries, Christians ended up settling the matter at the Council of Nicaea in 325.The Nicene rule separated the Christian computation method from the Jewish one. In the first place, there was a concern over being in spring: though these days, 15 Nisan is always a full moon after the spring equinox, sometimes Easter ended up being celebrated before the equinox, apparently, said the bishop of Alexandria, “through negligence and error” on the part of the Jewish calendrical authorities.
